The 1974 - 1975 - 1976 Round Records lil glossy postcards, I probably still have those somewhere in one of the boxes.

Seastones LP, (never made it to side two), Keith & Donna LP (probably the same) Reflections LP, the promise of good things to come, Tales of the Great Rum Runners, competent performer, great lyricist, Kingfish LP (kingfish was code for cocaine) good tight lil unit though, taped them at The Auditorium Theatre on July 23rd, 1976.

The house was barely 50% full and Kingfish played for whatever was the minimum time in their contract, 90 minutes at best. If you were alive in the 70s you may have known of a company named Superscope, a horizontal down troft marketing division of Sony. I had a portable stereo recorder the size of two bibles and security was so lax that evening it was no problem walking it in.

Hank Harrison was a client of mine in Palo Alto 1987 and turned me on to a pristine copy of St. Louis 05/15/77 he also alluded to a Jerry/Sarah tape in his collection fron 1963 but never produced it.

Hank smoked pot from sunrise to sunset, worked for SRI, Stanford Research Institute and lived at the Draegers Deli in Menlo Park.
